Beware of the great leader

Reader comment on item: Islamism's Likely Doom

Submitted by Lars Nielsen (Denmark), Jul 23, 2013 at 06:50

It is a well known fact, that all groups have internal differences. Chessplayers, football fans, religious and political groups, family members and so forth all have different opinions. And if they are fanatics, their internal differences are especially large and often violent.

So of course, islamists are too.

Therefore, they are no real threat, except when they get a large leader. Nazis are no problem today, but they were, when Hitler was their führer. Mongols are no threat today, but they were in the days of Djengis Khan. Islamists are no real threat compared to the days, when Muhammed lived.

So what are the qualifications of a great leader. That he can unite people and lead them to success. Så far, no such islamist leader has occurred. Let's hope, he never will.
